Job site 80/20 fence upgrade
« on: January 31, 2020, 10:55 AM »
Just thought I’d show some upgrades made from 80/20 extrusions to my ridgid r4510 job site table saw. Couldn’t find the stock fence  so I built my own fence.

Nice. Where did you source the thing/sliding bracket that locks in the front rail and what is the official name of that part. Tried to find something similar in sites like aliexpress but don't even know the name of it.

This is called Linear bearing and I believe the part number for it within 8020 inc system is 6426

If you contact 8020, they will send you their catalog, careful though, with a little imagination it becomes as addictive  as Festool.  I buy mine off EBay, but they also sell direct.

Fantastic! I love this stuff. Very clean and it must be really solid.

It’s super solid. And thanks for the brackets again. I can’t wait till I finish up my 80/20 extrusion cutting table and install them to it. They are amazing build quality!
